Leap of faith

We always run to see who will dare to follow us, build walls to see who dares to break them down and as a way of protecting ourselves but we keep doing this till we forget how strong we are. Sometimes the best we can do is stop running, stop building walls and face our fears...just then we will learn to know our greatest strength...it's all in the leap of faith.. 

Now how can one Build faith...self-belief.This is important when it comes to putting your thoughts into action in everyday life. If we set ourselves to a task but are lacking the faith in ourselves to complete it then subconsciously we are accepting defeat as inevitable. However, if we are able to convince ourselves subconsciously that we can achieve what we set out to do then our efforts will be boosted and the results will reaffirm our self belief and strengthen our faith. It is difficult for people to strengthen faith if they are lacking it. However, it is achievable and is done by a process which involves encouraging positive thoughts and emotions in the subconsciousmind rather than negative ones. This can be more clearly understood if we take a moment to think about how people fall into negative habits such as alcoholism. When a drinker remembers their first ever drink they will more than likely say they did not enjoy it. After becoming accustomed to drinking regularly and enduring the bad side effects they eventually start to embrace alcohol and eventually begin to rely on it. This example suggests that if thought impulses of any kind are repeated and encouraged then that person will seek to express those thoughts through their actions. If the thoughts are positive and result inconstructive actions then faith may be strengthened. If thoughts are backed by strong emotions such as faith and love then they have more chance of being expressed through actions. Therefore our actions can be affected by any strong emotion whether it is positive and productive or negative and destructive. If we are to become successful in whatever goals we have set ourselves in life then we need to avoid negative emotions and encourage positive ones. As aconsequence we will acquire a subconscious mind that will start to act upon all the positive emotions including faith. One of the most common causes of a lack of faith is low self confidence.

 This Can be overcome through a similar process to the one just mentioned. If we take the time towrite down all our positive experiences and attributes and then read these to ourselves daily, we will find that the repeated positive affirmations will reassure us of our accomplishments subconsciously and restore faith. 
By making others believe in our ability we can also reaffirm our self belief. 
The process of positive thinking has been called auto-suggestion and is a key to success. 
Remember success is in the leap of faith and Self-belief
